The key problem is belly fat that accumulates around abdominal organs, In addition to study in Britain, called the Million Women Study.

Now a study at Ohio State University has found that skipping meals not only doesn't work It can lead to abdominal weight gain, and that would be that belly fat. We're trying to get rid of. That's right. Well, researchers say, a number of small meals throughout the day and we've heard this over the years for many different doctors and different plans that you know these three.

Just the thing you're trying to avoid, you know, and skipping meals are drastically cutting calories has one other problem. It can make unhealthy food look more attractive Junk food or Sally Fallon calls the pornographic food. Exactly. So to lose those pounds don't skip meals, and that's especially true for breakfast.
